On Nov 2nd we will hold our next Coffee Hour session in our Grant Writing Coffee Hour series on Grant evaluation with Dr. Bonnie Green. Click on the image below for zoom link. Join us!



On April 28th we held a Coffee Hour session introducing a new pilot experiment, the “iEMBER Grants Community of Practice”, which has the goal of establishing ways to best support iEMBER members in getting funding for research on inclusive environments and metrics for education research.

You can view a video of the initial portion of the Coffee Hour describing our initial theoretical framework and plans here, and you can access a PDF of those slides here.

Interested in participating? Please fill out this survey. The survey asks for your specific current plans for writing grants (if any) and interest in programming, so that we can start to work to match/support interested participants and groups. You do not need to have a full team, proposal or idea to join! We want to know what you are working on, or need, to get going with the programming.

Stay tuned for the next coffee hour, and updates on programming - see the iEMBER Grant-writing Community of Practice page for more details!
